BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's first adult drug court is celebrating its eleventh anniversary.

The Bismarck-Mandan Drug-DUI Court began Jan. 5, 2001, giving nonviolent drug and alcohol offenders an alternative to being locked up. They must go through treatment and probation and meet other requirements. Officials say 117 people have successfully completed the program.

An anniversary celebration is planned Friday at the Burleigh County Courthouse in Bismarck.
